“Bec and Soda” will be the SAFM breakfast show in 2023.

The show replaces “Bec, Cosi and Lehmo” which featured Rebecca ‘Bec’ Morse, Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello and Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann.

Last month, a press release was issued revealing “Bec, Cosi and Lehmo” was coming to an end, with Costello departing on the day of the announcement. Morse and Lehmann, however, are co-hosting the show until Nov. 25.

Next year, from Jan. 9, Morse will be the only returning team member. She will be joined by Mark ‘Soda’ Soderstrom, who previously sat alongside Jodie Oddy and then Erin Phillips on ARN’s Mix 102.3 breakfast show.

His previous co-host Oddy has recently been announced as the co-host of Nova 91.9 breakfast alongside sports journalist Andrew Hayes. “Jodie and Hayesy” fills the void left by the “Ben and Liam” show, which is moving to Melbourne to replace the “Chrissie, Sam and Browny” show on Nova 100.

The “Bec and Soda” show rounds out the various shuffles in the Adelaide radio market over the past few weeks, with the Hit Network saying the duo will “bring the fun banter and South Aussie spirit for a whole new and exciting way to wake up Adelaide”.

Dave Cameron, SCA’s chief content officer, said it’s gearing up to be an exciting year for SAFM, which will be helped along by the “radio magic” created by its new breakfast team.

“We’re delighted to expand our SCA talent family to welcome Adelaide’s golden boy and radio star, Soda, to SAFM,” he said. “Together with SAFM favourite Bec, they will be a formidable powerhouse duo to entertain Adelaide at breakfast.

“Bec and Soda are both much-loved Adelaide personalities, and now together for the first time, they’ll bring a fresh new show to listeners on the radio station South Australia fell in love with, SAFM.”

Soderstrom said: “I’ve really missed chatting to Adelaide at breaky time and cannot wait to get back in front of a microphone again at the mighty SAFM. Bec is sharp, intelligent and witty, so she will put me in my place in no time. I’m very grateful to have the chance to work at an organisation that takes great pride in creating a team first culture.”

Morse said she was excited to be welcoming Soderstrom to the SAFM team.

“Soda is one of the best in the business and has a big heart when it comes to caring about South Australians. As long as he doesn’t bang on about all of his marathons, we are going to have a lot of fun together.”

Lehmann, meanwhile, is remaining within SCA, and will be part of Triple M Melbourne in 2023.

He said: “I love Adelaide and I love SAFM, but I’m pumped to be back in Melbourne reunited with my true love, Triple M – Oh, and my wife and my son.”
